C.A.S.A. Events Diary

This page provides information about our forthcoming events, all of which do require pre-booking.  We normally aim to run 12 to 14 events during the year,  numbers at each event may be restricted.  Details of recently held events can be found here.

 

The first section shows the current events for which bookings can be made now. The final section contains advance information about future events which are still in the planning stage - details may change - significantly!

 

Please note any 'last booking date' shown for an event, if none is shown then we need to receive bookings a minimum of 7 days before the function.

 

Tips/Gratuities:

We have previously included an allowance for this in the advertised price, however following suggestions from members this policy has changed.  For all events AFTER the 2024 AGM we will no longer do this.  Instead we will 'pass the hat' around towards the end of the event to collect a completely optional gratuity which will go directly to the staff.

 

We are unable to accept any plastic cards or cheques in payment at events which are thus "cash on arrival" only.

 

Driving directions to the venue and a road map will normally be added to the description about 10 days before each event.  If you want a 'personal' copy of the instructions for an event please use the contact-us page to request a PDF version, at least two days in advance please.

 

We always try to provide 'GPS' and 'What Three Words' location information, these are usually for the best parking place rather than the inside of a restaurant and may be more accurate than any provided by other sources - we do check them!  If using a 'search' function to find an event (e.g. Google a restaurant) make sure it gives you the correct place - there may well be two places with the same name in the same general area.

Preferably make your bookings by e-mail to bookings@casasocial.club or by using the form on the contact-us page.

If neither of these is possible for you then members may contact any committee member who will be happy to help.

Driving Directions

 

Unlike a couple of our recent events, which were a little 'off the beaten track', A Choupana is right on the EN125 and very easy to find. It is only a short distance to the west of Mexiloheira Grande. It has a huge sign at the entrance and a very large car park.

 

GPS: 37° 9'11.32"N 8°37'28.64"W

 

W3W: ///skinfold.requiring.mouths

 

If using the A22 leave this at junction 3 and head south down to the EN125; at the roundabout take the 2nd exit (signposted Portimao) and drive east about 1Km and A Choupana is on the right side of the road.


 

Using the EN125 from the west (Lagos etc.) - at the roundabout for the Autodromo (CM1051) continue straight (1st exit) on the EN125 for 1 more Km.

 

Using the EN125 from the east (Portimao etc.) you must continue past A Choupana 1Km to the Autodromo roundabout, go around this and come back 1 Km.

 

When parking please leave the space directly in front of the restaurant clear for our use later in the evening, there is plenty of space and the restaurant is open only for us.
